One thing leads to another… So now my son has a new desk. I have decided he needs a memo board to go with his soon to be decorated, new bedroom. It goes without saying that his memo board has to be large, simple and of course stylish!
He would probably like it to be black and macho. By the way you can see and read more about the desk in this post
So where to begin choosing a memo board for a boy?
Home Office Memo Board ideas.
In my sewing room I have a few alternatives for a memo board: I use a strikingly pretty, vintage tray for the little things. This tray is a superstar in its own right and once appeared on the cover of a magazine!
A peg Board Memo Board.
I do of course have the obligatory pegboard, actually I have two. They were made to measure for me by Marc and they are very, very handy.
I even made a cross stitch memo board out of one, but thats another story, you can read how how I did it here if you are interested?
In the kitchen ‘we’ as in Marc covered the side of a unit with some sheet metal, and use magnets to fix everything up. I love thist one, industrial, clever and very very useful…
So back to the boy’s memo board. I looked a few up and settled on these: He likes the orange one… With Velcro friendly felt on one side and a glossy dry wipe on the other. Perfect for my budding design engineer!
Sorted! …you can find them plus other fun alternatives here fromhmmm I think I may fancy that yellow one for myself!
Do you use memo boards? I often use them to inspire my imagination, a bit like mood boards, or a real life pinterest they help me choose my colour palettes when I am sewing or crafting.
